CBD is Good For ME

Over the past five years, I have been on a quest to rid my body of all over the counter and prescription medications.  Why?  Because my body don’t like em.  It told me this by acting out and being all puffy- really who wants to look like an oompa loompa?  I don’t want to spend absurd amounts of time at the doctor’s and dentist’s office (more posts to come on this later), and I don’t want to pay for medications that give me side effects and my body has to work hard to “clean out”.  Replacing some of those meds with a natural, hemp-derived CBD powder is one way I’m doing this.

On top of eating healthier, I’ve been cheekily putting some CBD in my soups for a day to day health boost :).  After doing this for about a week and a half, I’ve noticed some interesting effects…

Proven Benefits of CBD

  1. Relieves pain and inflammation
  2. Has anti-psychotic effects
  3. Reduces anxiety- social anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, and PTSD
  4. Helps fight cancer
  5. Relieves nausea
  6. Treats seizures, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders
  7. Lowers incidence of diabetes
  8. Promotes cardiovascular health
  9. Helps relieve skin conditions
  10. Restores functions like mood, sleep, and hormone regulation
  11. Helps treat lyme disease
  12. Helps treat bone loss

Now some of these, I obviously haven’t noticed a difference in without testing, but I can tell you I’ve experienced reduced inflammation and joint pain since starting the CBD.  Inflammation is the major cause of most diseases we are combating today, so I’m on board with that.

I get CBD in powder form because it is absorbed in the body best that way, and also because it makes it so easy to throw into any food item.  If I don’t have time to cook, I’ll take a powder-filled capsule instead and go about my day.

Let’s get clear on CBD

  • It is not going to get you “high”
  • CBD from hemp is legal in all 50 states and more than 40 countries around the world
  • You do not need a prescription to buy

The small powder container is the best value I’ve found, at about $1.2 per serving.  There’s 100 servings in that little guy so if you used it for a year, that would cost about $432.  My medical insurance was about $250 a month when I was having to go regularly, and lord knows how much I’ve given the Tylenol company, so I’ll take the switch and help support companies who’s values are more in line with my own.  Making my own decisions over here- real grown up style.
